The Clash – Bank Robber Lyrics

Artist: The Clash
Song: Bank Robber

My daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money

Some is rich and some is poor
And that’s the way the world is
And I don’t believe in lying back
Saying how bad your life is

So we came to jazz it up
Never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
Don’t forget to grovel

Daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to take your money

What law?
The old man spoke up in a bar
Said, “I never been in prison
A lifetime serving one machine

Is ten times worse than prison”
Imagine if all the boys in jail
Could get out now together
What do you think they wanna say to us

While we were being clever
Someday you’ll meet your rockin’ chair
‘Cause that’s where we’re spinnin’
There’s no point to want to comb your hair

When it’s gray and thinin’
Hey
Hey
Daddy was a bank robber

But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money
So we came to jazz it up

We never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
And don’t forget to grovel
Hey

Get away, get away
Get away, get away
Get away, get away
Get away

Daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money

Hey
Run, [Incomprehensible], run
Strike out boy
For the hills

I can’t find that hole in the wall
I know that they never will
Daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody

He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money
